sure jim is reelected. jim jordan, bob gibbs are here. and i want to be the senior senator from ohio. we need josh mandel in ohio. we need him now. you know, president obama -- over the last four years has made a lot of decisions. some of them, he siad would result in new jobs that haven't happened. he said he'd cut the deficit. it hasn't happened. we have someone who is running for president who knows how to bring back jobs. he has the experience. he has the experience and the record nd he knows how to work with democrats and repubicansbls and that's why we need mitt romney to fix what's broken and bring back the american dream. i see a uaw member here in front of me. i will talk autos in a way that is straight talk. obama said a few things that, as he said, were "whoppers." he said, you wanted to take those companies through ban kruptcy. it was obama who took gm and chrysler through bankruptcy. it was mitt romney who did provide for loan guarantees. every fact-checker who looked has said that barack obama was wrong and was not telling the truth. this is what is most important, with
it more difficult, houses that are so close together. in fact, abc news' jim dubreuil was on the scene overnight and here's how he described the scene. >> reporter: this is a community that lost the most people during 9/11, firefighters and cops during 9/11. this community was hit horribly tonight. then the fire just erupted. we were in a home and fire was literally right across from us. and as the fire just spread, we waded our way it another home and realized that the parking lot that we were next to, the cars literally started to blow up. again, the fire continued to spread. my understanding it has spread across about 12 blocks of breezy point. an area they call "the wedge." we thought we would come here and see people wanting to leave. tonight, they're being forced to leave not by flood, not by sandy, but by fire. >> we will be having information as it becomes available from queens. we'll have it for you again. a look at the greater new york city area struck so hard. including amy out there in staten island. >> josh, we have dramatic scenes of devastation coming into us right now.

in with josie. that's an area you want to stay away from. >> reporter: jim and killie, the water here on the jones falls continues to rise. two hours ago it started to crest. here it is well over the banks and over into the parking lot here and flooding is going to continue to become a problem. they have been preparing for that. i want to give you an update, baltimore police just sent out this update about five minutes ago saying 83 north on the westbound, the northern parkway ramp is flooded and closed until further notice. so they are getting the word out about that. lots of people are very interested in the flooding, about a half hour ago two gentlemen came down and across the bridge here and did something we would not add advise. they wanted to take pictures so they waded in the water. police and emergency responders will tell you that is a really bad idea. if you get stuck they will have to come after you. the mayor said earlier that you have to take care of yourselves, they have to focus on the greater needs and don't want to have to worry about you. keep that in mind. back to y

. three years later a really smart guy named jim milstein who was at the treasury department and responsible for the restructuring of a.i.g. he is a lawyer and investment banking restructuring kind of person. and he put out a proposal which has many common ingredients that we saw from the mortgage bankers association. here the emphasis is on a government agency, the federal mortgage insurance corporation, which authorizes, manages, regulates a series of security identifiesers and -- securitizers and the companies are not guaranteed, just the securities are. and the beauty of both proposals is that the technology and infrastructure and systems and human capital of the g.s.e.'s be wasted but compete with them. so i believe there's been some consensus around a proposal that is feasible and would work. one was issued by somebody who had an ax to ground, the mortgage bankers association, but milstein, coming from the treasury department, presumably his view is what is best for the economy but it is a very similar kinds of proposal in my estimation. and i wish that we could move ah

wild out here right now. >> the weather channel's jim cantore with her in new york city. >> will this storm live up to the hype? >> we're going to fd out. this is a factor of the storm beingo big and pushing the wawater up into areas where it can't get out. we saw this with katrina. if the w water comes up as expected, we would be under water, our crew would be under water, the battery park area will be under water. >> donald trump phoning in to me he's staying put in the big apple. >> what -- where are you right now? >>>> i'm in trump tower in my office. >> shouldn't yoube gettiting out of there? >> only because i love new york. we are fully prepared. we know exactly what to do and how to do it. >> you're staying? >> i live or die with it. i built many great ghlings new york and i feel confidence in those buildings because i built them. >> sandy truly a history maker. the stock market's first weather-related shutdown in 27 years. ubway service canceled, grand central station transformed into a ghost town. knbc's chris coleman with mario at the grove. >> what makes this

think he thought that america deserved what he was doing to us. of course, at that time, we had jim crow south, you know- we still had a jim crow south at that time. yeah. >> you see, that's what i mean by empowerment- he had to empower the african-americans so that they could then make the decisions. i understand that. >> this other step that you are taking, where you differ from your father and the others, is this then- it doesn't seem to me, from what i'm hearing, that this is actually a swing back, if you wanted to call it that, toward original islam doctrine and so forth, as it is a moving forward into maybe another arena. am i on track with that, or- >> well, yes. to me, the change is a moving forward into real islam, but it is also a moving forward into the world of reality. and i don't think the qur'an, or the religion given to us as given by- as it is preached by muslims of the world could have brought about this change in me, or in many of those like me- i don't think it could have done it. it took what that man did, it took his trick to break the grip of what we thought the wo
president next tuesday. >> i would add, right before we came on, i got a memo from jim messina the obama campaign manager essentially pushing back on the idea that pennsylvania is now a swing state. so to mark's point, the president himself might not be engaged and rightly so but his campaign is still active. this is not 16 days it's six days. >> the romney campaign put out a memo about pennsylvania. >> absolutely. >> let me ask mark akbout pennsylvania. i was there last week. the republicans saying we can do this, we can win pennsylvania, democrats saying it's not even in play. what is your assessment? >> well the obama campaign needs pennsylvania to win. the romney campaign doesn't. i don't think they would be wasting the money in pennsylvania on the republican side if they thought they had no chance or at least a chance to distract the democrats. if the romney campaign went on the air in new york, i don't think the obama campaign would feel compelled to match the dollars there. if the obama campaign went on the air in texas tv i don't think the romney campaign would feel the need to g
